The alleged shooter died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to police.
Immediately after the news broke out, celebs — including several famous YouTube stars — took to Twitter to comment on the tragedy.
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students — who survived their own horrific shooting on February 14 — also gave their two cents about the heartbreaking news.
Mr. Trump, you know in your heart that no one needs or wants your “thoughts and prayers”…what people long for is to feel safe and secure in their schools and workplaces and houses of worship. You nearly stood up to the NRA. What changed your mind?? https://t.co/CoUdguVmdm

Unbelievably upset & sick..
YouTube HQ.. my thoughts & prayers go out to the amazing team there.. I hope you all stay safe. No one should have to go through something so horrific.

I’m hoping for a hasty recovery, both in body and mind, to all affected by the shooting at YouTube HQ today and hoping for gun control soon so events like today are far less likely to keep happening.

I don’t even know what to say anymore about shootings, but this one hits close to home. Praying that my friends over at YouTube HQ are okay

My heart just dropped after hearing about the shooting at YouTube HQ… praying for everyone involved and their safety. It’s not fair that we can’t feel safe anywhere anymore….

Horrified by the shooting at YouTube HQ today. I will never understand how such horrible people exist in the world.

Stoneman Douglas High School students:
Not even two months after what happened at our school. Not even a month after what happened at Great Mills. But this time, it’s not a school.
My heart goes out to those in the YouTube shooting, I’m so sorry, this should have never happened, I promise we’re going to fight for you.
